NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. (AP) - Jurors weighing the fate of a Florida woman charged with killing her 5-year-old son in New Jersey in 1991 will return Monday to hear recordings of witness testimony.

Jurors began deliberating in Michelle Lodzinski’s case Thursday afternoon. The Port St. Lucie resident was charged with murder in 2014 after investigators reopened the case.

The jury listened to recordings of two witnesses on Friday and will return Monday to hear from two more.

Lodzinski first said Timothy Wiltsey disappeared while they were at the Sayreville carnival, then said he had been kidnapped from there. Prosecutors say the boy was never at the carnival and Lodzinski killed him elsewhere.

Her attorney says eyewitness testimony and a lack of forensic evidence are enough to cast serious doubt on the case against her.
